My 2011 ~ A Year In Review {Kingman Arizona Photographer | Las Vegas Photographer}

It seems that the older I get, the faster the years fly by. This one was no exception. I feel like I was just sitting here writing my favorites of 2010 post, and yet, here we are, finishing up the last days of 2011. This year was a big one for me. I made a major change in my business structure which has brought me many new, and wonderful clients. I am the mother of a high school student! I sent one more little one off to preschool, and yet another off to kindergarten. I became a soccer mom (and loved every minute of it)! I made amazing new friends! My photography grew by leaps and bounds (at least I think so). We are preparing to move into a beautiful house up in the mountains. I so look forward to the deer and other critters that we’ll be able to feed from our back porch, and growing tomatoes in the winter (it has a green house)! The brightest highlight of 2011, without a doubt, was the birth of our 9th little love, Elliott Andrew. He has been such a wonderful blessing to our family!

What do I look forward to in 2012? Living in the mountains! Snow! Meeting new people and growing in my photography and business even more. And more than anything, being a mama to my 9 sweet kids and a wife to my amazing husband. I can’t wait to see where 2012 takes us!

Without further ado, here is a collection of some of my favorite images from 2011. They are in no particular order, and I’ve mixed my personal favorites in with my client favorites. As per usual with me, I’m sure I’ve massively over-shared. I can’t help it! 2011 was a wonderful year!

A HUGE thank you to all of my wonderful friends, family, and clients this year for making it such an amazing year! I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and an awesome New Year!

Dave Falken - About 1 year ago I messaged you on POTN about Photoshop “curves” and you responded back almost instantly as I recall. I have been following your work all along snce then and I must say this: Your work is from a technical standpoint as close to perfect as one can get, but your ability to connect with your subjects and show their very hearts and souls is a gift that you have and are able to share with abundance. May you and your family stay well. I,ll be looking forward to seeing your work in the future.

April - Holy moly there are some outstanding make your jaw drop beautiful shots in this post! Congratulations on your new baby. I am assuming the shot with the 9 kids in it are yours? They are beautiful kiddos. I have to say as the oldest child of 7 they are so lucky to have a mom who can capture them all together so beautifully! I so wish I had some pictures like that with all of my brothers and sisters when we were kids:)
Hope you have the best 2012!
